    Some background about this well trodden place, lifted from the usual sources ;

    The North Wales Hospital (locally known as Denbigh Mental or Denbigh Asylum)[1] is a Grade II listed building. Designed by architect Thomas Full James, building started in 1844 and completed in 1848. Once a hospital for people with psychiatric illnesses, at its maximum capacity it could house 200 patients. It is located in Denbigh, Denbighshire, Wales.

    This set of stunning buildings spread over a large site is well trodden on here and other urbex sites, but I hope you like the photos of the current state of the place. The site is so vast, we only explored a small proportion of it. One of the easiest explores we've done. Much of the site now is completely trashed.

    After a leisurely stroll across some fields full of sheep, well it is Wales, we had a quick look around the church ;

    This place consumed so much coal keeping the place warm, it must have kept half the mines in north wales open. this is the weigh bridge scales
